Giovanna is half Italian and grew up in Essex and spent most of her childhood talking to herself (it seems no one wanted to listen) or reading books.
At thirteen she left Essex behind to attend the full-time Sylvia Young Theatre School, where she met her husband Tom Fletcher. Following this she completed an acting BA – since then she's been acting, chaperoning mini actors and dabbling in a spot of freelance journalism for heat, Bliss and Recognise magazines. In addition to writing novels, she currently writes a weekly blog for Hello! Online and posts weekly vlogs on her YouTube channel.
Mother of two, Giovanna is a firm believer in the power of magpies and positive energy!
